Well, if we do that we could also support Web Farms similar to what
IIS 6 supports, many instances of the same web app in the same machine
but in separate processes, so that you can recycle them in turns, what
means that the application is never totally stopped from the client

Just dreaming...

I'm trying to become a "Rosh Gadol" before my own eyes.
